I must say Mariners Lookout came as a real surprise, such stunning views of Apollo Bay and the surrounding coastline. After a steep short drive up to the carpark you have to then walk up a steep track for about 10 mins through private land...More

A short walk through a private paddock and ended with great views of the sea and coast. Good place for selfies and photography. The children of the family who has generously offered their paddock had some cute book marks to sell which we bought.

Fabulous! A short drive then a short walk to the top. The views were superb! Apollo Bay needs to be seen from this viwpoint, it is very special.

If you are travelling along the Great Ocean Road near Apollo Bay, a visit to the Marriners Lookout is certainly worth the detour. Follow the Marriners Lookout Road for about 3 kms and at the end of the road there is a carpark. The lookout...More

Just before you hit Apollo Bay proper there is a small sign directing you right to Mariners Lookout, take the time for a short drive to the top. The view is of the entire township and it is deceptively high. Well worth the trip.

You can ride up to the car park area - it is a proper roadway. Then lock your bike or walk it up on the last part of the pathway (would only be perhaps 500m for last part). Sorry can't help you about other bike tracks.
